We're Going GREEN at FOR FUN!

Yes folks, it seems that we're not the only ones out there in blogland to have the idea to go GREEN this week in honour of St. Patrick's Day!! Every other challenge out there seems to have this theme, so there's NO EXCUSE for you not to join in, and combine it with some of the other challenges out there too!

So, just to be clear, our challenge at FOR FUN theme this week is


We also have a fabby sponsor this week

I just LOVE her work, and you MUST pop over and look around....there are loads of freebies you can snag, and I bet you fall in love with her work too!

So, here's my card.....I went for monochromatic green.

I used a cute image from Meljens and coloured with Promarkers.

I used a variety of BPs from my stash, all green of course! I am a huge easel card fan, so I'm afraid its another easel card!! I created the sentiment on the computer, and liberally inked up the edges of the card and parts of the card too!

A ribbon and some gems complete the main panel of the card.
On the base I decided to leave a blank panel, which will be used to write the greeting and also the 'to' & 'from' part.

So that it didn't look too bare I added a flower/button/ribbon detail to one corner.

With all those green challenges out there, it would be rude of me not to join in with some of them (lol) sooooo.....I would like to enter:
If you're still reading, then a big 'thank you' for sticking around!! One final request.....please pop over to admire the DT's creations at the FOR FUN blog and leave some love.......Oh yes, just one more exciting piece of news.... we are also looking for Guest Designers to join our team for a spell of creativity! We would love you to apply for a week or two with our creative team and challenges. All you need to do is to create a card, scrap page, gift box etc to go with our challenge for the week. NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED! If we have a sponsor that week, you will also receive the sponsors image(s) to work with. Want to apply? Just leave a note for Meera, our GDT co-ordinator, in the 'comments' box and she'll be in contact with you...

Happy Crafting!
